Roman Burki and Marwin Hitz, Borussia Dortmund were in desperate need of a stable set of hands in goal. Marco Rose will be hoping that 23 year-old Swiss international Gregor Kobel will be that man, and bring the same level of success and durability the club enjoyed during Roman Weidenfeller’s 16 year spell at the club.
In a move that appeared to be inevitable for months, Borussia Dortmund have now officially secured the signature of VFB Stuttgart goalkeeper Gregor Kobel. The 23-year-old signs a five-year-contract with the Black & Yellows, for a fee reported to be around €15 million.
Bayern Munich have added to their defensive ranks in time for next season under Julian Nagelsmann, with 23-year-old defender Omar Richards joining the squad on a free transfer.

In news that everyone is very much aware of at this time, Erling Haaland is set to cost well over €100 million this summer if any club is to secure his signature. Bayern Munich have been one of many clubs falsely linked with the Norwegian striker and today Oliver Kahn has put that to rest.
After five years without a national title in the 1970s, Bayern was struggling with debt. They decided it was time for a change and hired their former player Uli Hoeneß as new manager. To financially stabilize the club, Hoeneß realized Bayern had to expand its revenue streams. Upon taking over, he focused more efforts on merchandising, and adopted fan engagement strategies from American sports leagues, significantly boosting the club’s revenue.
Currently sitting 5th place in the Bundesliga table, two points behind the final Champions League spot, Borussia Dortmund have had a disappointing season by the high standards of the club. The lack of competitiveness against the big Champions League sides have only made the transfer rumors surrounding their biggest star even louder and more constant. But the club is standing their ground and remaining consistent in their message – Erling Haaland is not for sale.
